Ever sent an email to someone, only to realize a second later that there was a change you wanted to make? Or that you’d sent it to the wrong person? Or worse, to a lot of wrong persons?

It can be set under General > Settings > Enable Undo Send, with options of 5, 10, 20, and 30 seconds. Once you’ve sent it, your outgoing mail will display the usual yellow bar with the additional “Undo” option for the period you’ve set.
